    Forgot what country and rifle the first bayonet with black round handle is from/for. Not German. I think pre war. Quite common. I got one for my son a few years back. Probably cost me $20

    The knife with the clear handle is a "theater made knife". The handles are plexi-glass. Some GI probably captured this knife and tarted it up. Collectable in their own way. This one is made by F.W. Holler (mid war production?) and started life as a Kampfmesser of the Wehrmacht or Luftwaffe. I'll let the knife guys add /correct what I've said. But the scabbard IMHO belongs to the knife below. probably got mixed up. Given that this is a GI theater made example I think the leather sheath in the knife below belongs to it.

    The third knife is a WW1 German fighting knife. Looks nice. Made by Ernst Busch. Again, the metal scabbard probably belongs to it. see the link below.

    The last one is a parade bayonet. Will let the bayo guys provide more info.

    The first knife is a Swedish M1896 bayonet for the M96 Mauser.

    The USN knife is a Pal made knife. Can't tell which model without seeing the rest of
    the knife. My best guess from what I can see of the blade shape is a RH-34

    The top one is 1896 Swedish Mauser. Scabbard and frog appear to be correct. These are usually found in nice condition.

    I'm not a bayonet buff as such but my bet is that it is for the Swedish Mauser M1896 and the maker is EJAB (Eskiltuna). I think despite the quite modern appearance it is actually pre-war.

    Yes. That was a typo by me. Definitely pre war. I just didn't remember who it was though.

    I must admit that whenever I see one of these my mind shouts "1950s" maybe because of the knurled and blued tubular grip which look so modern!

    I couldn't agree more. My knew it was pre war because I bought one...but I guess the artistic side of my mind subconsciously told my fingers to type something else.

    The Eickhorn marked dress bayonet here > http://www.warrelics.eu/forum/k98-bayonet/
    The Solingen Marked fighting knife can have its own thread here in the main forum.

    The rest do not belong in this forum as they are not German produced for the Third Reich

    The USN Knife here > http://www.warrelics.eu/forum/equipment-field-gear/
    The Swedish mauser Bayonet here > http://www.warrelics.eu/forum/bayone...-knives-world/
